Cauliflower & Broccoli Cheddar Bake

I don’t normally doctor up my broccoli and cauliflower. I grew up eating it steamed or raw with Ranch Dressing, but I was craving something creamy. Unfortunately I was out of milk so I had to “cheat”. A can of Cream of Mushroom Soup did the trick nicely and it’s a new favorite of mine! A few simple ingredients and I had a baked veggie side dish even the toddler in attendance wolfed down.

2 cups Broccoli Florets

2 cups Cauliflower Florets

¼ cup Onion; chopped

10.5 oz Cream of Mushroom Soup

2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

1 teaspoon Italian Herbs

3 cups Cheddar; divided

Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Bring a large pot with 1” of water and a steamer basket to a boil. Add the broccoli, cauliflower and onions to the basket, then cover and steam until tender; about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and vent the lid.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the soup, herbs, spices and seasonings, then fold in the vegetables and 1 ½ cups Cheddar Cheese. Scoop into a baking dish and top with the remaining cheese.
  4. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbling at the edges. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!
